Sure, but that's a glitch. And there's no merit in using glitches.

 

In PoE you could cancel recovery and reload completely when switching at the right time. Even worked with melee weapons and spells. Never used that as well.

When my MC was a mixed crowd controller and nuker I went Scout because the enemies were *always* under at least one negative effect so sneak attacks were the norm. Might go geomancer in a second game if I want for crowd control. Single-classed rangers just don't have enough stuff to justify it.

The pro move is definitely Geomancer Maia.

 

She barely even has to take any wizard skills, she can just use grimoires to cast almost as well as Aloth while also having excellent ranged damage. If she uses Llengrath's Martial Masteries she can self-buff herself for huge potency with weapons, and if you need debuffs, she can swap in a Grimoire of Disruption for all the essentials (expose vulnerabilities, etc.) 

 

Plus, she can then bind Blightheart *as a wizard* for bonus corrosive damage to everything.

Geomancer, Combusting Wounds + 8 Blunderbusses (Quick Switch + Arms Bearer + the Leather Armor that gives you +1 Weapon Set).

 

Driving Flight + Missiles...

 

It's good, but a ton of micro. :(

 

You dont really need to have the 8 blunder. Im only using an arquebus main weapon and scepter as 2nd (for slash/cruch dmg). As soon as i find a ranged 2H wpn that can do those 2 types of dmg ill trade it for the scepter. Even on POTD the game isnt hard enough for the need to micro that much. Plus as a Geo you are normally really tight on points if you want the good pet passives. For  Maia IMO the ones boosting pet dmg are mandatory since the bird can do decent dps with them.

Well, the idea is to produce 8x4=32 hits on the targets that suffer from Combusting Wounds in order to get 32 instances of CW's burn DoT going. Since CW is an AoE you don't want to pump all the pellets into one enemy (which would be overkill in most cases). Now also use Driving Flight for even more hits (best case 64).

 

Can't see how to do that with an arquebus. The bow of Frosty the Snowman might work well, too (with all those hits it produces).

 

I'm still waiting for an AI scripting option that lets you switch weapons. It's just too tedious to do it manually.
